Cancer and Cultural Values Get Personal at Valentino, MSKCC Fall Party

The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York held its annual fall party with Valentino on Wednesday night at the Metropolitan Club on 60th Street and Fifth Avenue. Young and old alike, the guests of this event transformed into peacocks — they were out and fanning their feathers. Glittering Empire waist dresses, drop diamond and emerald necklaces, sequins and velvet — you name it, it was sparkling at the Metropolitan Club, which itself is a pretty shiny place. The walls and floors in the entrance area where the cocktail hour was held were white marble, while the coffered ceiling gleamed golden. Inside the dining room: red velvet drapes and a sky scene painted overhead that vaguely resembled parts of the Sistine Chapel. In essence, this was New York high society at its absolute zenith.
Gillian Hearst, Indre Rockefeller, Mia Moretti, Dani Stahl and Shiona Turini all turned out in support. Members of the society including Clé de Peau ambassador Annelise Peterson Winter, Amanda Waldron, Jamee Gregory and Virginia Tomenson also attended. Most of those in attendance said they had been personally affected in some way by cancer, whether it was a family member, a friend or themselves.
